About Us

CLRP provides high quality legal services to low income persons with psychiatric disabilities living in Connecticut, primarily on matters related to their treatment and civil rights.

One of CLRP's most important goals is to empower people with psychiatric and other labels by increasing their own ability to influence the decision-making processes that, to a large extent, control their lives.

CLRP is a non-profit Connecticut corporation with its principal place of business in Middletown. It is governed by a Board of Directors which meets on a quarterly basis.

The Executive Director of CLRP is hired by the Board of Directors and has full responsibility, both fiscal and administrative, for running the Project, hiring/firing staff, and entering into contracts on behalf of CLRP.

In addition to the Executive Director (who is an attorney), CLRP's staff includes a Legal Director, Business Manager, staff attorneys, paralegals, Operations Coordinator and Operations Assistants/Screener.

Most of the advocacy staff spend substantial time at satellite offices in mental health facilities throughout the state, or conducting outreach and intake at community sites, including, but not limited to, social clubs, soup kitchens, and other community providers.
